    I just wanted to note that this is still a problem. I just tried to watch the most recent HD-MP4 episode of going deep on drawbridge. 

    High Quality MP4

    If I try to watch it on my mac (2011 Macbook Pro - 10.7.2) in Quicktime X then every few seconds the video becomes garbled (gray blocks). If I watch it in VLC then those some time points where it is garbled in Quicktime X are instead rendered as a stutter in the video. However if it is played in Quicktime 7 player then it plays fine. 

    So It would be great if you guys could fix this so that the video files play fine on iOS devices as well as macs. But in the meantime mac users can install Quicktime 7 on Snow Leopard or Lion to view the MP4 files properly.

    I found another aspect to this problem. First it only seems to affect the files that are downloaded via iTunes from the podcast feeds. For example the HQMP4 file I linked to above plays fine and weighs in at 754MB.

    However the one iTunes downloaded via my podcast subscription does not playback properly and weighs in at 1.23GB. So I deleted that entry from my podcast. refreshed the feed in iTunes with the "option+click triangle" feature and re downloaded The talk on drawbridge and now it is 719.2MB. 

    It seems to me there are problems with the podcast feed. I had another issue for the feed for example. The recent going deep episode on Advanced CRT 1 of n actually downloaded an MP3 file no the HQMP4 video file it should have. I also had to delete that and re download.

    So all in all I think you might want to look at how your iTunes feed is working. At least for the going deep HD MP4 podcast.

    Thanks for the update! I'll report bug for this and hopefully we can fix these HQMP4 files and have the iTunes feed working properly. I'll keep you posted.

    I have updated the bug again. This doesn't seem to have a high priority right now. but i will keep hassling the dev team to take a look at it.
